Secure by Design

Secure by Design

What is it?

Secured By Design is an initiative by UK Police to support one of the Government’s main planning objectives – the creation of secure places where people wish to live and work.  Secured By Design accreditation is widely recognised and desired in the world of property development.

How is it achieved?

To be awarded Secured By Design a development has to have applied the principle of ‘designing out crime’ by the implementation of preventative security measures and security standards.


Careful consideration must be given to the locality of the site and its crime trends, what the development is to be used for and the design of any building, car parks and surrounding landscaping features.


Secured By Design is achieved by meeting a number of key minimum requirements coupled with site specific enhancements agreed with a local Police Force Architectural Liaison Officer.


How can we help?

One of the security consultancy services offered by Advanced Security Partners Ltd is to act as a central coordinator throughout a project to simplify the application of Secured By Design principles.  We work with the Client, Design Team and the local Architectural Liaison Officers to ensure that all Secured By Design principles have been addressed during the design and applied during the construction phase of a project.  Through this process we can assist in the qualification of Secured By Design status for the scheme and the subsequent award of the accreditation.
